Medical student Jilly’s story of getting her life back with the Lightning Process


Jilly at the finishing line

“While the Lightning Process is powerful in its near-immediate potential to heal and restore, for me the sense of empowerment it brings about is especially wonderful; you acquire vital skills at your fingertips, allowing you to quickly and reliably deal with all manner of challenges that may arise long after the seminar.

The LP can be hard to define in exact terms but I can liken it to Roadside Assistance for your mind and body, which quickly restores optimal conditions, so that, post-seminar you are raring to go. Crucially, however, when you ‘drive’ off, you do so in the knowledge that the LP has provided you with an amazing DIY repair kit within the metaphorical boot. A tool kit that lasts for life, is timeless, free to use and versatile in its far-reaching applications, yet perfectly problem-specific in its capacity to repair.

I completed the LP seminar with Heather Thomas in November 2015 to overcome post-viral fatigue syndrome and the results were amazing. Attending the course however was not a decision I made lightly. Initially I was sceptical, a lot was promised and the medical student in me was wary of the minimal evidence-base. On enquiry though I found that the LP is simply neat package of evidence-based methods, formatted and delivered in a forward-thinking way that yields outstanding results.


Since completing the LP, I have returned to medical school, and beforehand spent five weeks hiking and hostelling in Peru and Ecuador, worked as a science tutor, completed a half marathon and most recently completed my first triathlon. It has been great and my body has facilitated rather than limited this, which was a welcome role reversal!

The LP is an integral part of all aspects of my life now. This sense of trust in my personal toolkit that is the LP is what makes me excited and hopeful for the future, physically and mentally more robust than I have ever been.”
